Diarrhea On Walks

Yes. This is very common. They like to eliminate as they get into a walk and then will do it again.

 

Water is absorbed through the Colon and Rectum overnight which is why morning stool is usually pick upable.

 

I'd put it down to either learned behaviour or something to do with stress hormones.

Has anyone ever had a grey that the stool is solid in the morning at home but runny diarrhea during a walk?

 

 

 

This happens in dogs in general. Walking, running, playing, movement of the hind quarters stimulate the bowels, and out comes the poop which hasn't been in there long enough for the water to get pulled out, so it comes out more watery than "usual."

It does seem to be quite normal, it has happened with all of my Greys. It does seem to be related to exercise and recently when my friends Grey had colitis the vet (same one as me) told him not to let the dog run about too much as this stimulates the colon/bowel.....I had never heard this before but it would seem to be true.
